Most of the time it happens that the video which we watch on the Facebook wall is the wrenched YouTube clips with edited text on top and bottom. These clips are re-posted on Facebook for social media engagement. But, if you want to save those videos, you can do it now using the Facebook Android App Available on the Play store. How to Save a Video from Facebook? You can spot this new feature in the “Saved” video section of the application. The “save” option is available in versions 85 and 86(beta) of the application.
One thing that is worth noticing is saving a video on the Facebook app doesn’t mean that the video is being downloaded to your device i.e. Laptop/smūartphone. Instead, the video is saved to your Facebook account and the downloaded file just remains in the Facebook app which is accessible only from the expanded and troublesome interface.
One reason why Facebook doesn’t allow its users to download videos to their devices is to prevent them from uploading those videos on other social media platforms. Hence, the only options left for users would be of sharing those videos via Facebook only.
